Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy genealogy, history, and lineage societies. I am in school full time, but when I get a rare chance, I traipse cemeteries. I tend to gravitate towards military headstones, freemason headstones, headstones for children/infants, and people born prior to 1930. At the time I joined Find-A-Grave, I worked full time and took headstone photographs on my lunch hour.

I am HAPPY to transfer a memorial if I have made one for someone related to you! I love it when people find a member of their family or one of their ancestors. Please leave me a message with the person's name and memorial number. The only reason I would not transfer a memorial is if the deceased is one of my lateral or collateral ancestors, in which case I'll let you know.

PLEASE NOTE: In trying to take photographs of graves, I often have very little information except for what is on the headstone or slab. I always search for the person before adding the page (usually with as little information as possible to get as wide a variety as hits as I can), but sometimes variations on surnames don't come up, or sometimes the person is listed as buried in a different cemetery. I have been known to miss a page that was created earlier. If I have created a duplicate memorial, please let me know! It is NOT my intention to create duplicate memorials and I will be glad to delete my memorial if the deceased already has a page. If you have additional information for any memorial I have created, please let me know and I will be happy to add it. I try to process edits at least once a month.

Bascom Shelton #94923328
From what I have found searching my husband's family - Bascom's parents were Charles Irby Shelton 1787-1871 and Jane Ashley Boyd Shelton 1809-1894. Bascom was born abt 1847 in Telfair County, Georgia. He is included with his family on the US Census 1850 and 1860. Thank you for all the work you do. I don't know what I would do without Find A Grave. Sincerely, Jody Shelton

RE: Edward D Amons
I think you go to edit@Find A and ask them to combine the 2 memorials. Be sure to include memorial numbers for each so they will do it.

RE: George Harrison O'Neal
George Harrison O'Neal was married to my Great Aunt Pearl Florine Roberts O'Neal (sister to my granddaddy). Yes, I would love for you to transfer him to me.

Thank you!

RE: Henry Dorminy
Nope, not my ancestor. I wrote a 900 page book on the Dorminy family so I traced everyone down that I could find.

Thanks for your work.

RE: Pvt. Byrd Owens
It's no problem at all:) As I am working on my family tree I'm just sending in edits if I happen to notice duplicates or missing links to make it easier for the next person - so thank YOU for taking your time to work on these memorials!

RE: Pvt. Byrd Owens
No need to delete the memorial maybe it will help someone find him. I think whoever created the other memorial just assumed he and his wife were buried in the same cemetary as his parents. I'm just a user of findagrave so I am clueless how to do a merge. I'll just add the links for his parents & wife to your memorial so that it will tie both Byrd Owens memorials together. Thanks for responding!!

William Lee Ellis
You added a photo to the memorial that I made for William Lee Ellis in Rose Hill Cemetery. Memorial # 45690532

Birth: Nov. 14, 1842
South Carolina, USA
Death: May 27, 1902, USA [Edit Dates]

Mary Gazaline Lamar Ellis (1844 - 1922)*

I really appreciate you adding it. But it doesn't match the dates for my William Lee Ellis. Your photo has 1870 - 1957. I see that there is another memorial with these dates for a William Lee Ellis. Would you please switch your photo to that memorial? Again, thank you for taking photos and sharing.
